Preventative Care

Childhood Immunization

If your children did not receive the recommended vaccinations by age 2, please schedule an appointment with your primary care physician to ensure your children are protected from infectious diseases.

Cholesterol Management

Blood tests and lab work should be evaluated after acute cardiovascular events to check cholesterol levels in order to prevent future problems.

According to recent studies, blood cholesterol levels are a major risk factor for heart disease – the number one killer of American men and women. A desirable "total cholesterol" reading is less than 200 mg. LDL-C is the "bad cholesterol", because it deposits cholesterol in the artery walls. It is recommended to keep this number under 130 mg/dl.

Comprehensive Diabetes Care

If you are a patient between the ages of 18 through 75 who is identified as diabetic and does not have an HbA1c test, please schedule an appointment with your primary care physician to have it taken care of.
